One onlooker who survived the attack commented – “It all started with her open disapproval of the opening credit names in the introduction of the movie. She started yelling ” where the hell are the iconic Hollywood names? – I think she expected a star-studded cast –
The audience started giggling and this further incensed her. She yelled ” shut up you puerile bunch – where are damn names in this movie!”

The chuckles gained momentum with each silly name credited – “what the hell are you laughing at? – and keep it down will you! she said.
The audience roared in hysterics – the woman screamed “Where is Nicholson? Curtis? Streep? Cruise? De Niro? – and will you please shut up!”
The whole cinema guffawed to the point of passing out – making animal noises – coughing their cinema snacks into the air.
The audience screamed with joy – tears running down their faces, rolling down the isle with their legs in the air. Then the woman stood up – pulled out a catapult and mildly damaged them all.”
In the subsequent police interview she was asked by the interviewing officer why she had committed such an appalling atrocity. “Well they were making so much noise they would have ruined the silent film” she explained.
